About the Dolph Briscoe Center


The Briscoe Center is undergoing a major renovation of the first floor of Sid Richardson Hall Unit 2 in 2016. During this time, our public reference services will operate from the Rare Books and Manuscripts Reading Room in the LLILAS Benson Latin American Collection, our neighbors in Sid Richardson Hall, Unit 1. While every effort will be made to maintain public research access to our collections during our renovation, limited space at the Benson Collection requires several changes to our reference and access policies and procedures. Please consult the “Plan Your Visit” page of our website for information about hours, appointment requests and retrieval policies.

Please call ahead to confirm, 512/495-4518
